Akshay Kumar’s 2007 horror-comedy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, is finally getting a sequel with Kartik Aaryan stepping into the actor’s shoes. Although with the movie being made in modern times, Aaryan seems to be the apt choice, cinegoers are still willing to see the Kesari actor in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, be it in a special appearance. The good news now is director Anees Bazmee is trying his best to work on his script in a way that Kumar could be a part of it. Hear it from the horse’s mouth.
Anees has himself revealed that he too is eager to have Akshay as a part of the film and is making tweaks in the script in order for the same to happen. The director shared it all in a conversation with mid-day as he said, “I would be more than happy to have Akshay sir in the film. I have worked with him in the past (Singh Is Kinng, 2008, and Welcome, 2007) and we share a cordial relationship. We haven’t completed the script yet. There is an attempt to write a character that suits him even as the narrative stays in sync with the first film. I hope he likes the character and agrees to do it,” says Bazmee, adding that Aaryan is rooting for the superstar to come on board. “Kartik will be the happiest if Akshay says yes as he is a big fan. (His presence) will also widen the film’s reach,” added the director.
Moreover, Bazmee also revealed that Bhool Bhulaiyaa isn’t going on floors before December this year as he needs time to analyse the project, given the fact that he hasn’t explored the genre before. “Since I have never attempted a horror-comedy before, I need to understand the styling of the film and live up to people’s expectations. I am also aware that comparisons will be made (with the prequel). On my part, I will be honest with my work and try my best to make a good film,” he shared.
We hope Akki agrees to be a part of the project. Do you think he will?
